Forum: vj_loops Subject: How to have the flash player but no other derivative files

Yes, here's the best course of action if you want the flash player, but no other derivs.

- upload your item as usual
- choose an appropriate license
- wait for derivatives to be made (usually takes a few hours)
- check out your item, remove all derivatives except the .flv files and .gif/thumbs files, check item back in

If you need information about how to check your item out, it can be found in the FAQs at http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#262

Argh, our http://www.archive.org/details/68_Vintage_Fairlight_VJ_Loops_by_VJzoo just regenerated all the useless derived files again for no reason! We hadn't FTPd or anything, they just reappeared. Grrr. It was painful enough to delete them all once.

And keep the thumbs as well, I'd suggest. People seem to like to print those out.

Thanks for all your help!
